REVIEW: Brick Store Pub, Decatur
We stopped at Brick Store Pub on our way down to the Georgia Dome to see a Falcons game. We’d heard traffic was going to be horrendous because of Georgia Tech playing that night also and VP Biden in town, so we decided to take MARTA downtown instead of driving. You can practically fall out of the Brick Store Pub and land in the Decatur MARTA station and we had eaten there before so we wanted to know if it was good as the last time.
We walked in and were seated right away. It was early for dinner but we wanted to eat early, ride the train and be in our seats with plenty of time to spare before the game. We soon had our drinks and decided on a cheese plate to get started.
Our server was kind enough to help us make our selections and was quite knowledgeable about the cheese they served. We decided on the SGD Asher Blue, Oma and L’amuse Gouda. When the plate came it’s served on a wooden plank and each cheese is paired with a side item and it comes with bread.
The Blue is paired with apple and it made a really delightful combination. The Oma is paired with peach slices and its truly perfect together. Finally the gouda comes with pecans and it is really amazing. The cheese plate was fantastic! Last time we visited we chose the charcuterie but we Melanie largely abstaining from meat, the cheese plate was the perfect selection.
For our entrées, I chose the Pierogi Primavera that is served in a garlic parmesan cream sauce. Our server pointed out that this is a vegetarian dish and he recommended adding the Andouille Sausage to it. Great recommendation! If you aren’t familiar with pierogies, it’s a polish dumpling that can be filled with almost anything but many times, they use potatoes. That’s the way it was in this case and it was fantastic. This is not a mild dish, but its not overly spicy either. It does have a bit of heat and may not be a good choice for diners with a mild palate. I thought it was awesome and would highly recommend it as the dish has tons of flavor and is quite filling!
Melanie went with the Chicken Pot Pie and thought it was the absolute BOMB! The crust was flaky and tender and the inside was piping hot and filled with bite-size chunks of tender chicken. This is a must have and perfect for the rainy weather we were having this evening!
Brick Store Pub is casual and a great place to meet friends. They have a large craft beer selection and its reminiscent of an old english pub. The food is excellent and the staff is friendly and knowledgeable. We think that you’ll have a fantastic time at Brick Store Pub! Guten appetit!
